Sublime guest house, absolutely loved it, comes highly recommended! Charming hostess, excellent service, Super comfortable beds, every square inch is spotless, lovely choice of Continental and English breakfasts - go for the latter every time! Much more can be said about the rooms and en suites et al, but everything was just perfect! Excellent value for money!

Quaint bed and breakfast hotel it was the first time we have stayed here and it won't be the last. Jackie and Roger are excellent hosts and wonderful people. Words can't do the breakfast justice. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable with super fast broadband. We would recommend it to everyone. Ann and Nick

A brilliant small B&B will a very, very warm welcome. A lovely room with garden view and very quiet. The huge English Breakfast with locally sourced produce except for the beans. Even the continental breakfast is filling for most people. Will be 1st choice when visiting the Swindon area.

A lovely place with just few guestrooms. Small but cozy and clean and with a warm shower and heating also in summer (if needed). In a nice neighbor hood, with brilliant breakfast one won't forget and wonderful service, makes you really feel like home!

First booking was in 2013 and have been down five times since then, which should say it all. The Old Post Office is a quaint quest house situated in South Marston, a quite sleepy village. Jackie ( but not forgetting Roger) is a very warm person and makes you feel at home.

some five years previous my partner and I were looking for accommodation for the annual International Air Tattoo at nearby Fairford when we stumbled upon vacancies at the Old Post Office ....... we read the reviews which were outstanding and duly booked a four day stay. We have never looked back and re book the accommodation every year. The guest... More

Always a warm and friendly welcome every year I come for the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, I class this place as my second home and class Jackie and Roger as family as well as friends, Jackie is like the Duracel rabbit she has so much energy, thank you both so much for having me again and can't...

A warm, friendly welcome, a comfortable room, a very comfortable bed and a help yourself breakfast in a lovely dining room. What more could we want? We had a two night stay at the Old Post Office, while working at Swindons Food & Drink Festival. We had a very early start time so unfortunately didn't get to sample the much... More

Having spent most of my travelling life staying in budget hotels in Europe, it made a lovely change to come to such a traditional English b&b. The rooms were bright and spacious with tea and coffee making facilities and overlooked the beautiful gardens. As a previous reviewer has commented, the beds are so comfortable and I had such a good... More

The Old Post Office Guest House is excellent value for money and the details advertised do not fully justify this superb guest house. We were warmly welcomed by Jackie the landlady who put us at our ease straight away. The room she prepared for us was very clean and the en suite was more than adequate. We had no problems... More
